AbstractThis chapter describes the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (NPP) accident starting with the reactors’ location and sequence of events which caused the accident. The amount of radioactive materials released and its composition, dispersion of radioactive materials over land and sea, contamination effects on food and the environment and radiation effects on human health are all addressed along with the current clean-up programme and future plans. However, it is expected that it will take 30–40 years to decommission the damaged facilities.
